Who is Katia?

My name is Katia Robinson Lucero. I speak English and Spanish and I have been in Social Work practice for 7 years in the state of Florida. I chose the profession of helping others because I have learned that the creation of our lives drives the inner passion we have and this energy is exalted towards the World we know. People have the power, and the capacity to resolve their own issues. It is here where our efforts are underestimated.

I had the wonderful opportunity to gain clinical experience at Marriage and Family center with LCSW, ACSW and CAP Maribeth Lichty in Fort Myers, FL. Plus, I also had the opportunity to finish my clinical supervision with Rachael Haskell, LCSW and PH D. at Resolution Today in St. Petersburg, FL. My clinical experience has allowed me to provide counseling and case management services to people with different kinds of problems. I have been able to help people who are victims and or survivors of domestic violence, people who deal with chemical dependency, people who are unemployed, people who are victims and or survivors of sexual assault, people who have mental health disorders, and people with chronic diseases and medical disorders. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and reality therapy to keep focus my client’s needs, desires and I support them throughout the way. I believe that the client is the expert and that my role as a therapist is to guide or facilitate a plan in which the client comes to the solution.

Success is not an accident. It takes hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most if all, love for what you are doing.
